The shift is particularly concerning for WWE because ABC has a broader viewer reach compared to ESPN, the previous home for Monday Night Football. For the current NFL season, the games will be simulcast across both ABC and ESPN.

This move comes as television networks grapple with programming adjustments in light of the recent WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.

ABC has revealed its schedule for the NFL games, which includes airing one of two games tonight and next Monday. Moreover, the network is set to simulcast NFL games on November 20 and December 25, while also featuring an additional game on December 11.
